As one of the most successful kart drivers in Brazilian motorsport history, Felipe Guimarães is supported by former Formula 1 racers Emerson Fittipaldi and Alex Dias Ribeiro.
Double R Racing announces its continued participation in the FIA Formula 3 European Championship this year, naming Brazilian youngster Felipe Guimaraes as its maiden signing for the globe’s biggest F3 category.
The 22-year-old, who will pilot a Mercedes-powered Dallara F312 in the FIA Formula 3 European Championship, is a welcome addition to Double R’s ranks and team owner Anthony ‘Boyo’ Hieatt is confident Guimaraes has what it takes to deliver a consistently strong campaign.
Anthony Hieatt, Team Owner Double R Racing: “Felipe is a fantastic young driver; we were very impressed by what we saw of him in British F3 last year. He obviously did a fantastic job in the South American championship and he’s certainly got the experience to be very competitive in Europe this year, I’m hopeful of a very strong season from him.
